Faculty Profile: Greta Kuphal, MD

We are pleased Greta Kuphal, M.D. has joined the Department of Family Medicine.  Greta has been a faculty member at Odana Atrium Clinic since September 2011. 

Greta grew up as the youngest of eight children in rural eastern Wisconsin.  She completed her B.S. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000 with a major in molecular biology. She then did a year of service through the AmeriCorps program working with homelessness programs in Wyoming. She entered medical school at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in 2002 and received her family medicine residency training through UW as well.  She then completed UW’s Academic Integrative Medicine Fellowship which allowed her to expand the tools from which she can draw to care for her patients from standard Western medicine to a wide variety of other healing modalities.  Her practice style is one that seeks to empower individuals to participate to their full potential on their paths toward health.  She feels strongly that good nutrition, regular movement and awareness of the mind-body connection are crucial component of health for everyone.

Greta has two young children who have taught her more about mindfulness and personal growth than any other teachers.  Her husband is a wonderful stay-at-home father and cook.  The four of them are year-round, weekly attendees of the Madison Farmer’s Market and appreciate the tremendous, nutritious bounty that comes from the soil and farmers of this area of the state.

Welcome Greta!
